Gorkhali Sudhar Sabha in Dehradun
In his speech, Bimal Gurung, stressed on the safeguard and protection of our Gorkha Culture and Tradition. The Government of India must ensure the safety and security of the Gorkhas living across India and a separate state for the Gorkhas would only fulfil the aspirations of the Gorkhas living in India.
The GJM has demanded Scheduled Tribe (ST) status for 10 Gorkha communities, namely Rai, Yakkha, Gurung, Bhujel, Newar, Jogi, Sunwar Mukhia, Mangar, Khas and Thami which will benefit these Gorkha communities throughout the country.
The issue of Domicile Certificate for the Gorkhas living in Uttarkhand will also be taken up by the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha with the Government of India and the Government of Uttarkhand.
